intersection. at some sections of the haze valley neighborhood the only light you can see out in the street are from some of the flairs that were placed on the ground. this outage is effecting the haze valley and western editions neighborhood. yesterday it was impacting laurel heights and hate ash bury. 6600 customers were without power. now it's down to 430. they don't know when power for the remaining 430 customers will be restored. they said it likely won't happen earlier than 8:00 this morning. live in san francisco allie rasmus. time is now 6:03. several cars are damaged in oakland this morning after a suspected dui driver rammed them overnight. it's all happened on foothill boulevard just after 9:00 p.m.. look at this damage. this is what was left behind. we are told the driver and two other people were take ton the
hospital -- were taken to the hospital. the car that suspect was in was stolen. in san francisco you car owners are being warned keep your eyes open. car burglaries are on the rise. 905 cars have been stolen in san francisco already this year. that is 10% more than this time last year. also car burglaries are up 22% with more than 2500 break ins reported. the search continues this morning for a truck driver that hit phone lines on highway 1 and caused -- on highway 101 and caused a huge traffic jam. we showed you the problem yesterday at 5:00. it happened near the broadway accident on millbrae. officers had to shut the lanes down in both directions while they cleared that scene. >> we don't know what the reason is he hit the lines. we could have avoided a lot of the backup if motorists would
have taken alternate routes. >> the highway patrol says it's possible the truck driver might not have realized he hit the lines. here's the license plate number. 4r23454 that truck may say e & m or something similar on the side. this morning oakland police are searching for clues after a man getting ready to move out of his home turned up dead. officers said they were called to a home on lion avenue after someone discovered the man inside was dead. there is no word on any suspects or a possible motive. richmond police on high alert. they are worried this weekend could be a violent one. they are bracing for retaliation attacks after a week of suspected gang related shootings. two men were shot and killed in two separate shootings tuesday

to buy a car because she wanted to get her purchase in before the dead line. she saved $25. customers may be shock when they take a look at their receipt. >> it's getting more and more. i think it's outrageous. i don't think they should just keep raising the taxes and keep raising them. it makes it harder for people that want to go out and buy new stuff. >> okay so here's a list of the city where is the sales tax hike goes into effect today. santa rosa jumped a quarter%. novato .25. back here in concord it's back up to 9.75. we will tell you how some people say they will try to avoid the sales tax hike all together. time now is 6:08 let's head out to sal. >> right now traffic is moving

will be higher clouds. we still have mild to warm conditions but slightly cooler by the coast. cooler and breezy on the weekend especially on saturday. it will usher in a cooler air mass. next week looking interest. warm early but then cooler, breezy and maybe even much colder by the end of next week. there is still a week to go before we have to tackle that. there are signs showing we may get rain back in here by the end of next week. today we are waiting for the high clouds. still it's an upper 40s now. livermore and fairfield 48. yet oakland is in the 60s. had a nice tweet from brian. he's in san francisco and said i can get used to this. yeah but it will not last. we are starting off at 62 in san francisco with low to mid 50s north bay. a little cooler as you go inland especially as you saw toward fairfield and livermore. upper 40s and 62 to san francisco. that is a big difference there.

about $10 million. capitola did ban to install smart meters this year but that did not stop after the flooding. it's standard procedure to replace broken or worn out meterings with the smart meters. they installed 17-meter. capitola has not said yet if it will ask pg&e to remove the smart meters. time now 6:11. numbers just came in from the government. what the government said this morning about new jobs and what the experts are saying this could mean for the economy. students at one university get to vote on bottled water. why some say it's time for a ban.

the leisure and hospitality industries. on capitol hill democrats say the republican focus on big budget cuts is not helping. >> the republican follies go on, the republicans have done nothing in 13 weeks in charge of the house to help americans get jobs. nothing to open markets for businesses to expand. nothing to open up markets overseas for american workers and businesses to compete more fairly. >> reporter: but republicans counter that excessive government spending has created economic uncertainty and that has hurt job creation. president obama is expected to weigh in when he tours a ups facility in maryland later this morning. reporting live from washington, d.c. alison burns. time now 6:16. is your sushi safe? there are concerns about possible radiation in japan. and some importers are

easy way to cut back on waste. critics of the plan say bottled water sales raise money for the school including student government programs. this vote by the way is only advisory. school officials do not have to take action. time now 6:18. and the roads have been good this morning. a couple of problems but sal is watching all of it. >> hello claudine and dave. we did have accidents but the injuries are to the traffic. westbound 580 traffic is backed up well because of that accident near the airport. three cars or two cars and a van if you want to get technical. traffic is slow. when you get to the may bridge toll plaza it's light coming up to the pay gate. hopefully it will stay that way on this friday the day after thursday and the day before saturday. northbound 101 approaching the
80 split. that traffic is moving along very nicely. now at 6:19 let's go to steve. >> thank you, sir. happy friday. very mild conditions for some. cool for others. i mean it's in the 60s for oakland and san francisco right now. yet fairfield and livermore upper 40s if you commute in from one of those spots. a little south, southeast wind at sfo. we are waiting for that sea breeze to kick in. still northeast at fairfield so it's a little fight between a slight offshore component. i think in the next few hours maybe around early afternoon the sea breeze will kick in. not before we have a lot of 70s and 80s. if you thought yesterday was warm it was. napa was 87 degrees. santa rosa86. 62 san francisco. santa rosa 52.
